Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop
It’s not the entire album, it’s just samples, but it’ll give you a good idea about the forthcoming Slash album Apocalyptic Love. You can stream samples of the album at Amazon. That also just happens to be the place that you can pre-order the album as well. Apocalyptic Love is due out May 22nd. Meanwhile, Slash kicked off his solo tour in Toronto on Friday and there’s a ton of video posted online.
Sold cheap, large volume
Oh, and speaking of Slash ... he most definitely appears on the Billboard Charts this week with Gun N’ Roses Greatest Hits album. That gem jumped up to No. 3 just behind a boy band and that mainstay album 21 from Adele. The GN’R Greatest Hits did beat out Bruce Springsteen’s album, though. But GN’R may have found a secret to boosting album sales. Offer it up for cheap. Google and Amazon’s MP3 store made the best of available for only 25 cents.
Other tid-bits ... Godsmack is said to be releasing a live album later this spring titled Live and Inspired. No word on the release date but it’s supposed to coincide with their upcoming tour with Staind beginning in mid-April.
Oh, and speaking of tours, Aerosmith's Global Warming Tour stops at United Center in Chicago, IL on June 22, 2012. Steven Tyler is going to "kick your ass and make out with your mothers." Go to www.livenation.com/aerosmith to RSVP for pre-sale tix.
Stream it before you buy it
We told you last week about the new Ministry video for “99 Percenter.” Some of the comments have been a bit negative for that song, but the band has made the entire album Relapse available online for you to stream ‘til your hearts content and if you dig heavy and fast industrial riffs then you’ll dig most of the album. Relapse hits shelves tomorrow!
